"Come Out Of Her, My People!"

(I originally wrote and posted this to my previous blog on 03/09/2007.)

Reading: YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 49-51

Three times in the book of YirmeYahu, YHWH warns His people to flee Babel (Babylon), and it is this same warning that is repeated in Revelation:

Jer 50:8 "Flee from the midst of Babel, come out of the land of the Chaldeans. And be as rams before a flock.

Jer 51:6 Flee from the midst of Babel, and let each one save his life! Do not be cut off in her crookedness, for this is the time of the vengeance of יהוה, the recompense He is repaying her.

Jer 51:45 "Come out of her midst, My people! And let everyone deliver his being from the burning displeasure of יהוה.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

What we know from the Scriptures is that YHWH/Yeshua did a lot more than has been written in the Scriptures--

Joh 21:25 Now there is much else that Yeshua did. If every one of them were written down, I think that the world itself would not contain the written books. Amen.

But we can be assured that what has been written is everything we need to know--

2Pe 1:3 as His Mighty-like power has given to us all we need for life and reverence, through the knowledge of Him who called us to esteem and uprightness.

So, then, why is this warning to flee Babel repeated multiple times? No doubt it is because our Savior wants us to heed and obey this warning!

What is Babel's crookedness? What are her sins? Why is YHWH so displeased with her and taking vengeance on her?

Rev 17:5 and upon her forehead a name written, a secret: BABEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE WHORES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The whole story of the Scriptures is about a Bridegroom and His bride--

Eph 5:31 "For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
Eph 5:32 This secret is great, but I speak concerning Messiah and the assembly.
Eph 5:33 However, you too, everyone, let each one love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she fears her husband.

The Bridegroom is extremely jealous and, in fact, says His Name is jealous--

Exo 34:14 for you do not bow yourselves to another mighty one, for יהוה, whose Name is jealous, is a jealous El –

He wants His bride to have eyes only for Him, to reserve her heart only for Him, to serve only Him:

Exo 20:2 "I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery.
Exo 20:3 "You have no other mighty ones against My face.
Exo 20:4 "You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,
Exo 20:5 you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous El, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
Exo 20:6 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.

Idolatory is whoring and abomination to the King of Kings, and that is why He is taking vengeance on the mother of whores and abominations for leading His bride astray.

One day He is coming to take His bride to the place He has prepared for her. The bride needs to prepare herself. She needs to take down all the altars she has built to false gods. She needs to smash all the idols she has allowed to creep into her heart. She needs to subject herself to Messiah and ask Him to set her apart and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word (Ephesians 5:24-27).
Rev 19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife prepared herself."
Rev 19:8 And to her it was given to be dressed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the set-apart ones.

(Babel, or Babylon, is the abomination of adultery, spiritual adultery, which is idolatry. Idolatry is when we esteem anyone or anything greater than YHWH, when we put anyone or anything ahead of Him. Also, when we pursue other 'gods' along with Him, like a wife having lovers in addition to her husband. )
